Did you know Taylor Swift‘s voice makes babies cry?
Well, one baby in particular- pal Jaime King’s kid Leo. While Taylor turned down some opportunities to make a lot of sweet, sweet cash, she did show for Leo’s christening and sang him a song…which he DIDN’T appreciate.
Taylor Swift proved that she isn’t all about making profits after reportedly turning down the chance to earn $2 million to perform at a wedding. The superstar was allegedly offered a million dollars for each song she chose to perform at a billionaire’s wedding, if she also spent 30 minutes mingling with the bride, the groom and their guests.
However, according to the Sunday Express, Taylor turned down the offer in order to sing for free at the christening of her friend’s baby. The 25-year-old, who has reportedly amassed a £160 million fortune, had understandably chosen to help her close pal Jaime King celebrate the christening of her second child, Leo. Taylor is godmother to the one-month-old tot and she was sure to do her duties and serenade little Leo and all the guests.
A guest told the paper: ‘Taylor arrived with her own music backing tracks and belted out some of her biggest hits, including Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble and Red. She even rocked little Leo in her arms and hummed a lullaby to him. But he started screaming almost immediately, so she sheepishly handed him back to his mom.’
Actress Jaime, 36, and her husband, Hollywood screenwriter and director Kyle Newman, 39, were described as being ‘deliriously happy’ about Taylor’s ‘sweet gesture’.
The insider continued: ‘You have to admire her for putting friendship ahead of financial considerations. She said no to a small fortune so she could bring happiness to a good friend.’
Taylor knows she needs to keep her girl clique happy, even if she can’t keep their spawn from crying. Still, this is pretty touching. What would you do- sing at a billionaire’s wedding or go to your pal’s kid’s christening? SO much MONEY…
If you love the VMAs, you KNOW this year has already been a ginormous tease.
At least we know for sure that Miley Cyrus is going to host… but what of the rest of the performers? Well, through some super top secret insider info, it’s being reported that Taylor Swift, Kanye West,Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, AND Nicki Minaj will all be performing.
That’s a pretty heavy lineup.
Taylor Swift is supposed to sing Bad Blood (which means the model squad might also be in tow) while word on the street Nicki Minaj might perform Trini Dem Girls with Lunchmoney Lewis.
The Weeknd is reportedly set to perform Can’t Feel My Face, and Nick Jonas and Walk The Moon will take the stage on the VMAS pre-show singing Levels and Shut Up and Dance.
No word on what Selena, Yeezy, Bruno and the like will perform but this feels like a heavy-hitting show, don’t it? Who do you want to see most from these rumored performers?
On August 21, the biebs was spotted out and about in Los Angeles with Xenia Deli, a 25-year-old model who has posed for Playboy and other racy publications. The two were holding hands AND Justin even serenaded Deli with a (lesser, obvi) rendition of Let It Be!
OH THE ROMANCE.
In the dark vid taken by a fan (below) the two look VERY close (I mean, what you can see). Let us know what you think of this new couple in the comment section BELOW!
Yeah, you heard me. Last night at L.A.’s Staples Center Taylor Swift brought out surprise guest Alanis Morissette, and the two took the stage to perform an epic duet of her 1995 classic, “You Oughta Know.”
WHY DIDN’T I BUY TICKETS TO THIS?! Taylor also said a couple words before the duet…
“She defined the music of her decade,” Swift, told the audience (of 10 years olds who probably had no idea what was going on). “She inspired a generation of confessional female singer-songwriters who all of a sudden felt like you could actually say these raw feelings that you had. You could actually sing about your real life, you could put detail to it, you could get really, really mad if you wanted to.”
The “Bad Blood” crooner added, “I think it’s fair to say that so many of the female singer-songwriters of my generation, including myself, would not write the way that we do without her and her music. And she has written some of the most brilliant music—in particular probably inarguably the greatest breakup song of all-time.”
HEAR HEAR. Unfortunately there was no “Ironic” encore, but I’m including the original video for all you YOUNGINS to enjoy.
